Russ the BIG Guy - New York Caricature Artists

Russ the BIG Guy

Russ The BIG Guy has been drawing since he was a small child. Boy, are his hands tired! The CarTOONicature, is especially for people too chicken to be "caricaturized!" Russ noticed years ago that many people, like himself, were reluctant to have their caricature drawn due to their own personal insecurities. Since they were self-conscious regarding the very features about to be exaggerated, Russ developed the CarTOONicature. It is a personalized and flattering combination of a cartoon plus a caricature and includes important elements of both. Russ loves the improvisational aspects of sitting with complete strangers and discovering what makes them tick. Clients are amazed at how Russ draws them directly onto the final piece, with ink. No sketching. No erasing. Russ' reward comes when the subject shows off the final CarTOONicature! Laughing and giggling ensue.
